In 1905, a small railroad town called ‘Las Vegas’ came into existence and later on in 1936, the Hoover Dam and Power Plant got constructed bringing fame to this small town, which is also declared a sight-seeing spot, not forgetting the Grand Canyon National Park. Commonly known as the ‘sin city’ offering nightlife, shopping, gambling-resort and tourism, Las Vegas has it all! On March 19, 1931 casino gambling in Nevada and Las Vegas was legalized by Kenny Guinn the ruling governor at that time, and the city came to be known as the hub for the most number of casinos!
The decision to legalize casino gambling in Nevada could be attributed to various reasons, and the first license was issued to a woman named Mayme Stocker who opened the Northern Club on Fremont Street, which is now downtown ‘Las Vegas’. Celebrating its 100th birthday in May 2005 the city is regarded as the gaming capital of the universe! Any controversies in the gaming industry were addressed by the Institute for the Study of Gambling and Commercial Gaming, which came into existence in 1989.
With a surge of visitors in 1961 the city declared a huge profit of $107 million. Now there are about 300 casinos and “The Venetian” which is the world’s largest casino, cost $2.5 billion to construct and staggers over 12million sq.ft which houses a convention centre, holiday resort and an amusement complex.
